A Sticky Wicket On Tap For Croquet Match

| April 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

Layout 1Bring your picnic baskets, fancy hats, dancing shoes, and all the family.  The annual croquet match between the Johnnies of St. John’s College and the Midshipmen of the Unites States Naval Academy is on tap for Saturday, April 20th (rain date April 21st).  This is the 31st meeting of the two teams which has largely been dominated by St. John’s.

The crowds will be plentiful and the colors galore as guests dress in their finest spring outfits reminiscent of the Kentucky Derby attire.  This is a fun, family event and it kicks off at 1pm on the Great Lawn at St. John’s College.

Any bets on the theme for the Johnnies this year?
